2011 Technology Resolutions

ResolutionsI try to learn at least one new thing every year in the technology field. In 2010, I learned (and build a production application from) Asp.Net MVC 2.0. I also learned Windows Phone 7 development and even got an app in the Marketplace called Nerd News. You can see a little more about it here or by searching for Nerd News in the Marketplace.

In 2011, I’m beginning the year with the goal of learning more about Node.js, Socket.IO, and Git. I had hoped that CodeMash might have some Node stuff this year, but it doesn’t. Maybe I can find or start an open space about it…

Do any of you try to learn a new technology every year? If so, what are yours for 2011?

I know it’s just source control, but Git is a game changer. You’ll be able to do things that you would’ve never imagined you could do. You will never want to go back to TFS or svn.

I’m the same way. Last year I tried to pickup some Ruby, this year I think I’ll look at F#, and node.js actually sounds interesting too.

Very interesting. Have any specific ideas in mind for Node.js?

I’m starting out this year trying to learn more about Open GL ES and OpenCV (computer vision), specifically on iOS for now. I’d also like to get you to school me on some WP7 at some point.
